The chairperson of the human rights committee, Jovah Kamateka, said that the committee will demand for an explanation from the police officers on why they re-arrest suspects in a cruel manner which includes the undressing of Ssenfuka publically during the scuffle which violatied his rights.

Kamateka said the re-arrest was brutal, saying that all police officers who violated his rights should be brought to book to answer for their actions individually.

The IGP and other police officers behind this incident will appear before the committee when parliament resumes next week.
